The UKIL eXpert creel options are designed to provide high performance tension control of the yarn during all phases of operation. One V-creel and three different H-creel options are available. Heavy duty construction is used throughout each type of creel. The number of packages and spacing between them is designed to meet specific needs of the application. If necessary, creels can be custom designed to fit in small spaces.
|Package pitch||Package diameter + 40mm (minimum)|
|No of steps||6 to 10 steps in zigzag or inline arrangement|
|Creel type||“V-Creel” / “H” type gate (swivel) / truck or transfer|
|Loading and running||Outside loading / inside running “H” type|
The Ukil V-Creel offers an inside loading and outside running configuration. Empty packages indexed from the running position are replaced with new packages by motorized movement. Anti-ballooning/tensioning bars are adjusted to keep all ends throughout the creel equally tensioned.
The Ukil T-Creel, or Truck Creel, consists of a series of movable trucks which can be loaded outside of the creel. At the end of a set, the current trucks are removed from the creel and the new loaded trucks are rolled into position. Two sets of trucks are included for quick indexing between sets. This creel is an H-type and is commonly used for pattern styles.
The Ukil TR-Creel, or Transfer Creel, offers an outside loading and inside running H-type configuration. Each position has a running package and an auxiliary package, allowing the end of the running package to be tied to the new package for continuous transfer.
The Ukil G-Creel, or Gate Creel, consists of a series of gates. The running packages are located on the inside while the auxiliary packages are outside, where they can be switched out while the machine is running. To switch between packages the gates are simply rotated 180 degrees.
